Check page size and orientation? .

Have you downloaded Adobe...

Two more comments Adobe 8 is not safe any more. Either get version 9.1 (very large download), or a better idea is to get the free (much smaller) Foxit version 3.

Maybe not much help, but I use Adobe pagemaker for my final stuff & Word only for rough drafts. I know that you can 'place' a pdf file into a pagemaker document, & it then becomes apart of that document. ie opens & prints in Pagemaker. I feel you should be able to do similar with Word, but don't know which buttons to push. Any Word experts out there for comment?

this thread reminds me to try some more free pdf viewers, i dislike foxit's trickey, which is getting worse. pity, it's a really nice app. i have 5 to try here

Thanks everyone I'm going to uninstall v8 and try 9.1..

yorick, Apr 3, 9:56pm 3 is an option if a bit excessive. Download and install and then put on the PDFimport extension. It has the additional advantage of allowing you to edit the PDF if you want
